"Beychella" shook the internet in 2018. Singer Beyoncé reunited with her former group Destiny's Child at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California. The rousing performance is now the subject of a Netflix documentary due out on April 17.

Netflix released a trailer for Homecoming on Monday. It promises a deep dive into the concepts that powered the set, which combined Beyoncé's history of hits with an homage to the historically black colleges and universities in the US. 

The trailer is full of behind-the-scenes footage and clips from the show set to a voiceover by poet Maya Angelou.

"Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement," Netflix said in a release.

Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé looks like it will explore the heart behind the beats and help define a moment that transcended music.
